    Hello, I'm a Newbie :)

    Just thought I'd say hello. I'm on Day 4 of Cambridge and yesterday was a tough day. So nearly stuck my head in our goody cupboard and inhaled. But I didn't, and I'm finding today easier. I'm doing SS, and hoping to lose around 4 1/2 stone. Looking forward to talking to you all xx

    Morning!

    Welcome! I am on my 5th day today, and similar to you I found yesterday hard work. I seem to cope well during the week, but find weekends a struggle. I have a 3 year old so the extra energy of pleasing an active 3 year old and preparing food for him just seems to make my tummy rumble that bit more!

    Have you had any positive side effects? Before starting on Wednesday last week I was feeling very lethargic with no umph to do anything much, but found from day 2 that I had bursts of energy that motivated me to move and walk more! I hope you're experiencing some good vibes?

    When do you get weighed? I'm excited for my weigh in day! I actually downloaded the 'weight record' from the forum and have been filling it in so that my weight can be recorded as I lose the weight.

    Do you have a special event that you're aiming for?

    Hi Emma, No positive side effects as yet. Although I have 5 boys so I'm always on the go LOL. I found the weekend tough but not too tough, my Husband kept me on the straight and narrow. I don't want him to catch me cheating So I have a feeling it may be during the week that I find it difficult, like you I have a little one (he's 2) so will be doing him little dinners and then of course the main family meal at night. My weigh in day is a Thursday, but I'm being a little naughty and standing on the scales every other day I'll stop doing that after the first few weeks though when I know it's working LOL. No specific event really, just doing it because I'm fed up of wearing horrid baggy clothes to hide myself and to be healthier for my children How are you doing? xx

    I think I've found my stride now, it's been a tough but manageable weekend. Like you say, I stood on the scales this morning and have been totally spurred on x

    Hi Hothmog, we are the same height and have the same goal weight. I am now only 6lbs from goal! It's the final push and then maintenance calls. Keep going, it's so worth it!
